There is further evidence that the Brazil striker Everton Soares is going to move to the Premier League as he has been filmed learning English. It is thought that the Arsenal transfer target is close to confirming a £36m move to the Gunners. In addition, a doctor team has been sent to Brazil to conduct medical exams of Everton Soares. Following new signing Gabriel Martinelli on Instagram, the 23-year-old football star has dropped a small hint that he is heading to the Emirates. And now there is another clue that has arrived when Isa Ranieri, Everton Soares’ wife, posted on her Instagram account on Thursday a videos string of her husband learning English from his phone. He was mastering the words ‘dress’, ‘hat’, and ‘jacket’ as he began to get a grasp of the new language.
Everton Soares became a target for Arsenal when they could not meet Crystal Palace’s valuation of Wilfried Zaha. The Brazil forward star appears to be available at less than half the price of the £80m that the Gunners were quoted for the Ivory Coast winger. It is believed that Arsenal technical director Edu has met with the agent of the player last week and Everton Soares has worked well as general coordinator of the national team of Brazil before returning to Arsenal.
The Gremio striker was a great star of the Copa America over the summer, scoring three goals in the tournament for the host team Brazil as well as winning the Man of the Match award in the final after Brazil beat Peru 3-1. Many clubs including Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, and AC Milan have all also been linked with a move for Everton. However, it appears that Arsenal have won the race for the in-demand forward.
